Agreed. What I do as well, is record the phrsaes as MP3 files which they can download to iPod or whatever, or I burn to disk for them. So the students have some of theirs, some of mine and an accompanying list to take away and PRACTISE.The value of repetition cannot be underestimated – and recording each round is a very clear proof to the students that they improved with each RP. Having a recording is also a fantastic resource.
